New sermon series Beginning October 13, John will be starting a new series entitled, “Broad Brush Strokes of the Bible.” The story of the Bible is our story. It contains many different types of literature including history, wisdom, law, prophecy, gospel, letters, etc. But in the midst of it all there are four major movements: Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration. These major movements help us to understand the reality of our hope in Christ in everyday life.

Please join the Outreach Committee in welcoming Johanna Lawrence from CASA, NH who will be providing a community question and answer night, right here at WPC! What is CASA? CASA's website states: Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of New Hampshire strives to protect the rights of our state’s most vulnerable children to live, learn and grow in the embrace of a loving family. Our trained volunteer advocates speak for the best interests of abused and neglected children who’ve come to the attention of New Hampshire’s family courts. Imagine you’re a child who has been removed from your home because your parents aren’t doing their job. You’ve been taken from the only people you’ve known for the first few years of your life and sent to live with strangers who you are told will care for you. You are facing a series of complex, confusing court proceedings where your future is decided by a judge based on information gathered by social workers and lawyers. But who is looking out for you? That’s where CASA comes in. A CASA volunteer is appointed to advocate for an abused or neglected child’s best interests. The advocate become the “eyes and ears” of the court, making independent, objective recommendations to the judge based on the information they have gathered through meeting with the child and his or her parents, foster parents, social workers, school teachers, therapists and more. If this is something you'd like to learn more about, please join us Tuesday, October 22, 5:30pm in the Fellowship Hall.
